Gold medal 2404 won't heat

Double check that the kettle is plugged into cabinet.
Does the Switch light up? if not it is the switch is bad.
If it does, than either it is the kettle lead wires, or themostat, or the heat element that is bad. In that order.

Paper jam. Sheet printed but didn't pass through the rollers

  • Remove the paper tray completely by pulling it out towards you.
  • Now pull the jammed/stuck paper out gently.
  • If you cannot remove the paper by the above procedures,open the printers front cover to access the cartridges assembly.
  • Pull the cartridges assembly gently and slowly.This will come out together with the jammed paper.
  • If jam not cleared,open the back cover and pull the tab outwards to access the fuser unit.Remove the stuck papers here.

  • Hope this helps.Thanks!

I have an HP OfficeJet G85xi, and it keeps displaying a "paper jam" error. There's not paper jammed, and the back rollers keep spinning every time I turn the machine on. I've wiped those...

I see you mentioned a Paper Jam Error occurs even if there is no paper Jam in the printer.
You also mentioned that the back Rollers keep on spinning when you turn the printer ON seems the printer still detects a piece of paper inside, if the sensor detects Jams inside the roller will spin trying to roll out the paper it detects, makes sure that all jams in the very inside of the printer is checked for any small piece of paper, it can some times tear and small pieces can be lodged on the sides or stuck somewhere.

The covers are melting, sagging in the middle

From what you have described , the damage to the unit is rather advanced and I would suspect, unrepairable at this point. Just to many critical parts involved. Obviously, the heat overload sensor failed and allowed the unit to get grossly overheated. I'm surprised it didn't burst into flames. For now, disconnect the unit from it's power source and refrain from using it. Check your Owners Manual and hopefully it's still under warranty. If so, contact Sanyo about warranty replacement of the unit and any other occurring labor charges.

I'm sorry, I wish I had better news for you.

The paper will jam when making a copy. I have cleared the paper from the door on the back of the machine. The paper dislodges in one piece. I do not see any more paper by lifting the top tray. Are they...

To answer your last question first, any copy machine or printer that uses toner, by design, will get very hot in the back of the machine. This radiant heat is coming from the fusing unit, when acts as an oven to burn the toner to the paper; and generally overheating problems will not cause jamming. More than likely you have a physical obstruction blocking the paper path, my suggestion to you would be to take a thick piece of cardstock and manually pass it through the paper transport section. This act will force out any small paper dust or debris in the transport section; also, I'd recommend spraying some canned air through the path as well. Out of curiosity, when the paper jammed, did it appear to be bent or torn in a particular area of the page?

Let me know.

BADGER GARBAGE DISPOSAL just humms. does not work.

It sounds like the disposer has something jamming it. Try using the breaker wrench supplied with the disposer (or a suitable-size hex wrench) fitted into the socket on the bottom. Rock the wrench back and forth to see if you can loosen the jam. Another trick is to use a wooden rod (end of a broom handle, for example) to push on the blade to try dislodging the jam. Look inside with a flashlight to see if there is something that is easily missed. (I have found drink can tabs, coins and a shelf clip that way.)

It's also possible the motor starting capacitor inside the disposer or the motor itself is bad, in which case you would probably spend less on a new disposer than on repairing this one. But a jam is more likely.
